This reprint of an actual early 19th-century diary provides today’s readers with an engaging rarity: a fifteen-year old farm boy’s brief, concise notebook and author Eric Sloane’s delightful drawings and explanatory narrative of the daily entries. A bygone era, preserved in its simplicity, is revealed in text that tells of life on a New England farm and such common tasks as nail-making, bridge-building, shingle-splitting, and spring plowing.
